How to Change the Stereo in a 2005 Dodge Stratus

Save

The 2005 Dodge Stratus came with a few different stereo options. One inexpensive way to add additional features to your Stratus' car stereo is to replace the base model deck with a higher-up model from a wrecking yard or automotive recycler. Changing out the factory deck with a stereo from a higher-up model will give you the same features as a higher-up model Stratus, and save you the cost of purchasing an aftermarket deck.

Things You'll Need

  • Factory Dodge Stratus stereo
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Unscrew the two screws from underneath the air conditioning controls using the phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the bezel around the climate controls off of the dashboard.

  • Unscrew the original stereo from the dashboard using the phillips-head screwdriver. Unplug all connections on the backside by hand. Take the original stereo away from the car.

  • Hold the new factory Dodge Stratus stereo near the dashboard. Plug the connections into the backside of the stereo by hand. Slide the stereo into the dashboard, and screw it in place using the phillips-head screwdriver. Push the bezel back onto the dashboard, and screw it in place using the phillips-head screwdriver.
